I have never had to go to a product web site to figure out how to get the item to work. What is so mysterious about letting your customers know how to unlock the handle so it can be used? Why not put that on the box or a note on the paper punch. It works great once you find out the secret to unlocking the lever! Seems like an unnecessary step, and a waste of time, for your customers.

When you look at this product, you would think that it would be easy to unlock. I had no idea what to do. I tried the instructions given and it was only when I broke them into little pieces was I able to get it by accident. 1. Hold down leaver 2. Look for lock/unlock sign 3. Push that sign to unlock. This type of instruction could be included with this hold punch. I only gave it an average as it is so hard to figure out how to unlock it.

Comments about Swingline Manual Hole Punch:

Put the directions on how to unlock handle SOMEWHERE!!! Also, ease of use is limited because in order to lock or unlock handle the tray has to be removed EVERY time.

    Recommend only if it came with illustrated instructions

    By John

    from Silver Spring, MD

    Comments about Swingline Manual Hole Punch:

    Who would have thought you needed instructions for a manual paper punch? If is very difficult to figure out how to fix the handle so you can actually insert paper. The "lock" "unlock" positions do not clearly reflect where the handle actually sits: the indicators refer to the lever on the bottom of the unit, not the handle itself. The instructions on this site about using a lever are useless because they don't tell you you need to take off the soft plastic bottom piece to find the lever. THEN you can move the lever in the direction of the unlock position and then it is possible to insert paper.

    Unlocking

    By Philip

    Comments about Swingline Manual Hole Punch:

    It took me and a coworker about ten minutes to figure out that you have to hold the lever down and slide the arrows left or right to lock/unlock....works great! Just hold down the lever folks

    Comments about Swingline Manual Hole Punch:

    This is the dumbest product I've ever spent money on. Even after reading all the questions here, I still cannot unlock this thing. I'll be requesting a refund.

    Works great once you figure out how to unlock it...no instructions on unlocking

    By Linnie

    from Ohio

    Comments about Swingline Manual Hole Punch:

    Should come with instructions on how to unlock the handle. I'm sure this product will work well but I wasted valuable time trying to figure out how to unlock it. Thankfully others wrote reviews so I could find out how to unlock it.

    Good product except for rubber punch catcher

    By reporter

    from New York, NY, USA

    Comments about Swingline Manual Hole Punch:

    I have had this product for a few years and it worked very well but now the rubber on the bottom is falling apart and I have been trying to hold it together with tape. Other than that the product has worked very well -- but now it's difficult to use without getting little round pieces of paper all over my desk when the rubber part falls off.

    Cartridge Comparison Guide
    • Cartridge Types
    • Ink & Toner Basics
    • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
    Cartridge Type
    Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
    Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
    Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
    Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
    What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
    Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
    Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
    Material Liquid ink Dry powder
    How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
    Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
    Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
    Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
    Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
